. good evening. >> hello, bret. senator dianne feinstein acknowledges it will be an uphill battle but here is what she is fighting for. the new measure would ban the sale, manufacturer, transfer and importation of 157 specific guns. along with a broader group of other guns that would mean a new lower threshold for classifying as an assault weapon there. would be numerous bans on high-capacity magazines and beefed up checks on transfer and sale of all weapons. backers say it does nothing to chip away at the legitimate second amendment rights. there we have tried to recognize the right of a citizen to legally possess a weapon. no weapon is taken from anyone. the purpose is to dry up the supply of these weapons over time. therefore, there is no sunset on this bill. >> a number of participants said repeatedly if the measure were law the children in the newtown massacre would likely still be alive. gun rights advocates disagree noting just about every action the shooter took leading up to and including that day was already illegal. spokesman for the national rifle association says this
editor of thegrio.com. joy, it's a big day on capitol hill today. senator dianne feinstein introduces her bill to ban some military-style assault weapons. i think 157 types. now, this is the same bill that gun lobbyist wayne lapierre referred to as a phony piece of legislation, one that's built entirely on lies, but you tell me, is there a bigger lie in the world than the one that guns don't kill people? >> yeah, exactly. well, you know what? the problem is that unfortunately increasing in this country, people with guns kill people because there's a sort of formulation that guns don't kill people assumes guns are laying around on the ground or the carpet. the problem is in this country we have the highest rate of gun deaths in the world and in the parts of the country that listen most to the nra, namely the american south, we have the highest rate of gun deaths in the country. so there's a direct correlation between more guns, loser gun laws, and more deaths. the nra doesn't care about that because, of course, all they care about is selling more product. they represent the product sellers

california democrat dianne feinstein's plan. yesterday she introduced a bill that would ban more than 150 types of assault weapons along with certain types of gun magazines. the nra's response was immediate. the group says, quote, the american people know gun bans do not work. and we are confident congress will reject senator feinstein's wrong-headed approach. cnn talked to a south carolina sheriff who called senator feinstein's bill scary and says he will not enforce any federal gun ban that he sees as unconstitutional. >> another element that i strongly disagree with is the idea that somehow or another this is going to prevent the kind of violence that -- that everybody is concerned about. i think there is some practical problems associated with things like the magazine capacity. but i will tell you that i think that much of this is taking advantage of our grief, and people's general lack of information and understanding about firearms in general. >> senator feinstein's bill, it is the most ambitious piece of gun violence legislation that has been put forward since december's school mas

by dianne feinstein and about gun-control. the "usa today," headline says -- what are you looking to hear from the senator and her supporters today? guest: what we will hear today is an introduction of a piece of legislation to renew the assault weapons ban, really which is to stop the sale of more than 100 assault weapons. it also protects gun owners by exempting more than 900 specific hunting and sporting weapons. i think what we will hear is not just talk about the assault weapons ban and the curbing of high magazine clips, but an understanding that there needs to be a comprehensive approach in the country now to reduce gun violence that includes assault weapons ban, assaults -- reduces the number of clips from 30 rounds to 10 rounds and high- capacity magazines and fixing the background check system. right now we have holes off about the background check system. gun owners themselves, all support insuring that everybody who purchases a gun goes through the background check system. so you will hear that as well. potentially you hear about measures to limit gun trafficking. host: what d
between the political parties here, but two familiar opponents. you have senator dianne feinstein of california, who just a couple of days ago, introduced this assault weapons ban legislation. and wayne lapierre, the nra's executive vice president. these two will face one another wednesday during a senate judiciary hearing, according to the website, called what should america do about gun violence. but, it will feel like debate deja vu for capitol hill watchers because those two run opposite sides, this was back in the early 1990s when this first assault weapons ban passed. that, as you know, has since expired. their arguments are coming back to life. we went into the archive and found feinstein and lapierre from two decades ago. >> you also, at some point, have got to say, enough is enough. otherwise when the nra will not say that you should not permit the civilian sale of bazookas, what we're talking about is a weapon crafted for war, that floats around the streets of our cities, that puts our police in a position of being outgunned by the bad guys, that has kids killing kids wi
